. president obama is among those people. so he is being slightly hypocritical with the 18% rate. americans well understand the tax situation is out of control. they are thinking up new taxes all the time. they will do almost anything to get our money. in maryland, they interested in new attack on rain -- that is right -- rain. if it falls on your property, you have to pay money to the state. that is called a storm water management fee. it may cost maryland taxpayers $300 million every year. how does the state how much water runoff you have on your property? it's going to be monitor you using satellite technology. that sounds like the twilight zone? it is. next up, they will be taxing the internet. monica crowley, taxing the rain, are you right with that? >> we don't have enough money from the federal government because federal rates are lower since the '50s. states depend on it and make it up in order to pay what they have to pay. >> bill: you are okay with taxing the rain? >> i'm okay with local municipalities need what they need to do which is why more fair tax rates. >> bill: coming ps

and all the people on the democric side. the thing because of president obama's direct this involvement with black americans and jobs and his abandonment of us, do you think that there could be a backlash in the 2014 election, where the 93% or the portion of the 93% of the people that voted for him in the election would deny him the president of gaining the house? there is this message fo in the black community, because we know that he has nonck ahior br. thank you so much for taking my call. i love c-span. host: thank you for your call and comments. guest: >> on one hand you have the argument, people saying if you give a pathway to citizenship, they are going to take jobs away from people who should be able to have those jobs. the counter argument is, these people are often working jobs that others would not want or be able to have. that is a tricky situation. it is very interesting and striking how, despite the unemployment rate that is a little under 8%, we have now seen some polling with leaders on capitol hill, all the stars seem to line to add something, with that argument that wa
american leaders like carter, baker, or president obama, at the end of the day, american policy has little or no real concern for the national or the human rights of the palestinians. eaisrblt concern for the palestinians. this is meant that while governments got what they wanted, we'll have noticed a peaceful and just resolution was not the result. indeed, i would argue we are further away from such a result than when we naively walked into the state department here in the fall of 1991 to negotiate. in consequence, i argue in the book that long standing american policy on palestine has not served the long term u.s. national interest. in so far as it's a just and lasting resolution of the conflict, our policy disserved our national interest; nor has it servedded speer national peace and stability reminded that my father worked in the political security council division of the united united nn telling me before he passed that more than half of the work relates to the middle east, and most is palestinian, arab, israeli. intergnarl peace and stability is affected by many, many things in the a
the american way in almost identical language to that which obama reported seen in terms for my father. trues her father came out in 1995. the audio dream in 2005, that book after obama's historic 4004 democratic convention speech, whereupon i began his rise to the presidency and the audio version in 2005, frank marshall davis is completely purged. he's not mention one time anywhere. you could listen to the audio version and it goes word for word you come to the section on frank and it just skips. it skips ahead a few paragraphs come a few pages again and again and again. frank marshall davis because obama now and handlers and so forth no pleasant to for him to acknowledge the relationship with a man who is an actual member of communist party u.s.a. >> or political science professor. how did you become interested in the story? >> a previous book was called dupes on how the american communist movement deliberately sought out american progressives and liberals and lied to them. they would admit they themselves were communists. these these liberals and progressives that one of the american commu
're putting the wonder back into air travel, one innovation at a time. the new american is arriving. >>> right now at this very moment in the aftermath of the boston marathon bombings, the united states finds itself at a critical juncture in the still unfolding story of how the obama administration combats threats to american civilians and wages what it no longer calls the global war on terror. from the very beginning after september 11th, american policy in this area has been constructed through a series of often ad hoc decisions made during the intense moments following acts of violence against the united states. those decisions have then gone on to have tremendous ripple effects and unintended consequences. today as we find ourselves in one of those intense freighted and immense moments, the question of how the obama administration reacts is one we should all be paying attention to. and there is no journalist in america, in the world who has reported on what the war on terror actually looks like under the obama administration better than any next guest, jeremy scahill. his amazing chronicle
>> this week, both weekly addresses focused on the boston marathon bombings. first president obama, then the republican address by senator tim scott of south carolina. on monday, an act of terror killed and injured people at the boston marathon. but americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately that's what we'll remember from this week. the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity and love. the brave first responders, police officers and firefighters, the e.m.t.'s and national guard, who ran toward danger to help their fellow citizens. the race volunteers, spectators and exhausted runners who rushed to help, including troops and veterans who never expected to see such scenes on the streets of america. the determined doctors and nurses at some of the world's best hospitals who toiled day and night to save so many lives. the big hearted people of boston. residents, priests, shopkeepers, who carried victims in their arms and delivered water and blankets, lined up to give blood, opened their homes up to total strangers. and the heroic federal agents and poli

offer the boston marathon participants an tun to cross a finish line at halftime. >> president obama used his weekly address to tell americans to praise the city of boston for standing strong in the face of last week's bombings. >> if anyone wants to know who we are? what america is? how we respond to evil and terror? that is it. severallessly, compassionately and unafraid. >> president and police obama attended a memorial service in boston on thursday for the bombing victims. in this morning's dress the president said "boston's unwaivering spirit remained undaunted in the face of terror." the president told the people of boston the rest of the nation is with them in their time of trouble. >>> here in the bay area love and support is pouring in for a martinez boy who was wounded in the boston bombings. ktvu's john sasaki shows us how friends and neighbors are raising money for aaron hern. >> reporter: it was a great day for a work in briones park, but this day was about photography for a good cause. >> oh, pretty. >> it's a great family and we just want to help them out. >> nico
obama spoke of the american spirit in the face of acts of terror. >> we will not waiver from the character and compassion and the values that define us as a country. >> what an amazing and absolute relief for all of the people who live in this area but a story that still continues to unfold. >> we want to hand it back over to matt and savannah in new york. >> thanks very much. we'll get back to you in a couple minutes. >>> now to the investigation and what happens next. pete williams, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> let us know. i think everyone is wondering of course what were their motivations and investigators are trying to piece that very thing together. >> that's the big question. the question is what were their influences and what caused them to make this big change and that will be part of where the investigation goes from here. seeing if they did have any overseas influences, influence from others, communications with known terrorists, all of those things to be determined although the fbi is already very aggressively pursuing that now and on the oth
and as president obama said the other bay; day, we all have to rise as americans we have this amazing -- in the next year and the pledge i make for my nun i couldn't think people is that we will rise together and so we have summer jobs and internship that we can take here in san francisco for young people in the parts of oakland and young african american that are still dropping out before they finish high school and i think if they get a job or an intern ship in the summer they are less likely to drop out and so that is what i'm ep ending with and oakland is a city of hope that we need help and that is what we need do is support the american dream by making sure that everybody in the city rises and so thank you very much and we look forward -- [inaudible/incomprehensible] >>> my admiration and love and understanding of what the culture is experience i have been here for 50 years, our 50 is one of the greatest cities to ever rise up and stand up if you meet people from oakland, they are some of the warmest people they carry hope, they use fire they -- oakland is a hub of creativity
as all americans' continued inspiration. >> president obama will visit boston tomorrow. cnn will have full coverage of his arrival and the interfaith ceremony and he'll participate. i want to talk to fran townsend on the phone. she has been following leads all day. thanks for joining us. all the agencies involved in this investigation at the local level, federal level, how does that complicate an investigation or is there seamless cooperation? >> i can tell you in all the terrorism investigations i've worked what you hope for and work toward is seamless coordination and a single investigative plan and that never happens. different investigators following different leads give different weight and credibility to it and so they have to work through what are their highest priorities? how valuable is the information and what are the next steps? that they're working through that doesn't mean there is conflict. there is sort of a natural process by which they're kind of -- their elbows are up and they're working the details. these are smart people working way long hours and sometimes come at
recent reports are they are investigating very diligently that tragic incident. the obama administration says they cannot try in an american court because he is an american citizen with a king kill him with a missile fired from a drone despite that he is. square that up. >> this really comes down to a political debate. republicans verses democrats and if you take it from a completely different perspective, the government says we can try him in a federal court and let him have his u.s. constitutional rights he is a citizen. the you we will be so good to prosecute and show the world exactly what our justice system can do. they wanted to win swift and harsh that is what they want to do. lou: i get back, but again how can this of ministration with a straight face say what they're doing is because he is an american have it on negative citizen but they just argue he could kill an american citizen with a drone firing a missile? >> you talk about the family , , the victims, those people want to see this individual brought to justice to go through the system and me held accountable. lou: the reas

that an overwhelming majority of americans say they want. an extraordinary speech, i think, by mr. obama and just showing a few seconds doesn't do it justice, so for those who missed it early, catch this. here's more of the president of the united states late today. >> while this compromise didn't contain everything i wanted or everything that these families wanted, it did represent progress. it represented moderation and common sense. that's why 90% of the american people supported it. but instead of supporting this compromise, the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill. they claimed that it would create some sort of big brother gun registry, even though the bill did the opposite. this legislation, in fact, outlawed any registry, plain and simple, right there in the text. but that didn't matter. and unfortunately, this pattern of spreading untruths about this legislation served a purpose, because those lies upset an intense minority of gun owners and that, in turn, intimidated a lot of senators. and i talked to several of these senators over the past few weeks. and they are all g
